i may be over exaggerating a little bit but this seems to be the sentiment for a lot of people who are trying to get a first hand look at the famous grocery store. luckily, i know a guy and was able to by pass the line as i think it’s a bit nuts to wait in the freezing cold outside for a grocery store. listen, you do you but to me carrots are carrots.
walking through that store is certainly an experience. it’s thoughtfully laid out, and the décor makes you believe you are in an italian market. it’s a great place to get lunch and do some work.
for those of you who are not aware, @caffevergnano1882
has a residence on the second floor. the cafe itself is absolutely beautiful, it’s a gem within a gem. all of the furnishing is immaculate and bring a feeling of warmth and familiarity (just like being at home). what is really cool about their space and furnishing is that each object inside has been studied with the environment in mind and with the use of recycled or biodegradable material. if that is not a reason to support @caffevergnano1882
, don’t worry the coffee itself is.
for this review i went with my classic and favourite coffee drink, the doppio long. they used their 1882 blend which is exclusively available within their cafes. this blend uses arabica beans from central america that have been singularly roasted and then blended with an arabica “sidamo” of ethiopia. i would consider this blend fairly complex. it’s medium-full bodied (although most reviews would say 100% full-bodied), and presents earthy aromas.
what makes this blend complex is that it gives you every indication that it would have chocolatey and nutty tasting notes but you get hints of floral and citrus fruits. it took my taste buds on a journey and i enjoyed it. it had a balanced acidity and a nice sharp aftertaste.
i’m certainly a fan would highly recommended this to any coffee lover!
there espresso machine is also picture perfect!
